Our first night away from the airstrip here at 7,800’ and it’s under beautiful clear blue skies. The winds above 14,000’ are moving hard but here it is calm. We walked 3.5 hrs north on the Kahiltna Glacier to the base of Ski Hill and occupied some vacant sites.  All told a pretty relaxing afternoon after adjusting to our pack & sled loads. Tomorrow we will gain 2,000’ to our next camp at 9,800’ which puts us near the base of Kahiltna Dome’s east ridge.

Good night friends and family!

Grandma (Dorothy) wants to say good luck to you Bob and Nikki, and also to the rest your expedition, and god bless. I also wanted to say climb high, and don’t die, and happy anniversary to you two! It’s a great way for you to celebrate it.
